The separator is a holey membrane which is placed between battery’s anode and cathode. Its main objective is to simply keep two electrodes apart in order to avoid electrical short circuits. It also allows transport of ionic charge carriers which are required to close circuit during passage of current in electrochemical cell. A separator contains polymeric membrane forming microporous layer. Porous Power Technologies has recently discovered ground-breaking work in order to enhance safety of large-format lithium-ion batteries that are used in low-profile consumer electronics, electric vehicles and high-power applications.
Now-a-days modern batteries contain highly reactive chemicals which will intelligently react at prominent temperature by default. The main functionality is to simply operate in such a stable environmental bandwidth. The SYMMETRIX HPX-F ceramic-filled separator intelligently improves overall battery’s thermal stability in order to decrease risk of catastrophic cell failure. It will also increase cell performance and allows cells to cycle longer with conventional separators.
Advantages of Battery Separator:
Improved puncture and abuse resistance
Reduced likelihood of hard shorts
Far less separator shrinkage
Extra power in high-current applications
Enhanced thermal stability with less cell degradation
More operating and bake-out temperatures
Improvement in cycle life performance
Increased overall thermal stability
As use of lithium ion cells for high power application becomes increasingly safer and reliable of those cells and battery packs is of paramount importance. In this modern era of tablet PCs and electric vehicles, the lithium ion batteries help the users to get larger capacity as well as higher energy density. Additionally, this has already created demand for high-performance separators which electronically separate cathode from anode in order to achieve highest level of safety as well as high voltage stability.
With the help of HPXF battery separator, the ceramic particles are completely distributed throughout ceramic particles. In order to achieve maximum runtime, digital cameras, cell phones and laptops use cobalt-based lithium-ion. These battery separators act as sponge and its material composition as well as unique polymer matrix structure wick into battery cells more evenly than traditional battery separator.
